Record warmth today!

NEW RECORD HIGH: 67 Providence, 66 New Bedford as of noon.
High pressure in control delivering our record high temperatures today. New Bedford’s old record for this date was 58 and Providence 60.  Showers arrive this evening and as a cold front approaches Friday morning, we’ll get a steady rain through midday. The front moves east and a drying gusty northwesterly wind takes control for the start of the weekend. Plan for a windy Friday evening with falling temperatures through the 40s.


We’ll be above normal again tomorrow, but Saturday may end up just below normal with Sunday and Monday slightly above normal. In any case, the month is on track to be warm overall as our La Nina winter continues.


A few showers out ahead of tomorrow’s rain may move through this evening.


The cold front moves through early afternoon. Most of the rain falls between 8 am and 2 pm. We’ll dry out late in the day. Plan for a chilly evening as temperatures drop with windy conditions.


We’re almost gaining 3 minutes of daylight each day now!


It’s tougher to get an appreciable snowfall with more daylight from a stronger sun. It’s even tougher to keep it on the ground once March arrives. No snow is in our forecast the next 7 days.
